Coach Tom Izzo in Frankenmuth

Head coach of the Michigan State Mens' basketball team, Tom Izzo, was the guest of honor at an event in Frankenmuth Saturday night.

The Bavarian Inn was decked out in Spartan memorabilia in honor of Izzo's visit.

Coach Izzo was the keynote speaker at the Frankenmuth Community Foundation's Legacy Ball.

"My roots are small town America and I have a real appreciation for this. I not only have excitement about it it's something that I feel in my heart is great for this community," said Coach Izzo.

The Community Foundation is behind several philanthropic efforts in town such as the Cass River Greenway project, Park Drive restoration at Memorial park and scholarship funds for Frankenmuth High school graduates.

This year marks the third annual Legacy Ball.
